Greece considers reopening primary schools on 1 June

The Greek government is moving towards the opening of primary schools if current epidemiological data continues on a downward trend, its spokesman Stelios Petsas said on Friday. The most probable date will be 1 June. 

Kindergartens and nurseries may also open, Petsas added, cited by Ekathimerini. Secondary schools in the Balkan country opened on 18 May.

"It's not normal for our children to be six months away from school. It is normal for them to be at school,” the government spokesman said on Skai TV. But he made it clear, as PM Kyriakos Mitsotakis had noted on Wednesday in his televised address this would happen on the condition that coronavirus infection rates remain low. Mitsotakis will announce next move on Monday after he has heard the suggestion of the experts.
